Universal State Formula

CurrencyStandard Monetary Unit

The Republic of Universal State Formula is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.375 billion citizens of Universal State Formula are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 4,455 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 698,867 Standard Monetary Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare citizens of Universal State Formula can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, and they say that Leader's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Universal State Formula is ranked 1,430th in the world and 38th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 20,662.11 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
